Back from Bronycon

Well, that wasn't cheap but I'm back now and it'll be my last non-sponsored vacation for a while... I did decently on sales and I had a great time with my friends and other artists.

As usual, I spent a lot of it behind a table so I probably missed a good chunk of events. The meetups were a ton of fun afterwards, the room parties and going sightseeing around New York.

I actually never met John de Lancie, Tara Strong or Lauren Faust there. I wasn't really too interested in fan or celebrity worship. I know a lot of really talented people who aren't as lucky, but that line looked astronomically long just to get a signature...

There were a couple of odd times, like Tara going "Tonight I partied with bronies!" at the music palooza... I think most of us turned around and walked away at more sing-alongs, it definitely was not music and dancing, just more fan-service stuff.

There was also a minor fire and large evacuation on the last day. That really damaged final sales and shook everyone up, broke the mood at bit. Some jackass even stole a Twilicious poster and ran off with it from JJ/Will's booth behind us while they made us leave our stuff... some people really have no shame.

I should do a longer write-up but I'm still a bit tired from traveling. I'll try to get some of our friends up on streams as Skype guest commentary/calls and we'll try and recount the funny or interesting things I'm forgetting.

Most of the celebrities in this case are quite probably awesome people - but I guess they're kept on a tight leash? *Chuckles.* It does add some credibility to a convention. Over here conventions tend to be very pricy lounge sessions in classy hallways with barely relevant guests. (Maybe that'll change, but it's how it is now.)

I'm glad you did okay at your booth and had fun! Do you feel inspired? I bet you'll release some fantastic pony art from your brain!

I watched allot of the events and panels on stream, including Bronypalooza. Looked like a hell of allot of fun. I dunno what would make you call it "fan service", because I saw allot of dancing and music there. Tara Strong was on stage with the mic for like, 3 minuets when she said she was partying with the bronies. They proceeded to dance and go nuts for hours afterward in a very rave-like atmosphere. After that some Brony misicians sang their own songs and the party ended. Didn't seem very fan service-y to me.

I probably just walked in with a lot of the artists and our friends and Sergeant Sprinkles at a bad time... when we came in, they were singing Smile Smile Smile with the crowd and it was REALLY bad and with the same poor booming audio quality from that room, same as the whole con...

Well, I am glad to hear you did decent and had some fun!
The lines for signatures were STUPID long... So much random things that happened.
It is sad somebody would actually take something from a vendor table... I had a feeling something like that would happen during the evacuation. I don't have coffee or even words for that matter to talk about everything here XD

From what I saw on everfree radio the VA panel was the best thing to watch. Everything ells was okay.
